nothing looks better

I put the magazine down
gave the guide a look
read another chapter
in a very long book
days are long
nights are even worse
a dreamless sleep
my insomniac curse

drank a pot of coffee
all by myself
wiped down the counters
cleaned a few shelves
I went to work
put in a long day
there's just no fun
when you're away

got my hair cut
had lunch with some friends
it fills some time
but the hours never end
I even went shopping
tried on some stuff in blue
but nothing looks better on me
than you

    Missing a significant other can certainly cause everything you list -- and the rhythmic muted musicality of your piece seems just right for your subject matter. Good work.
